A positive vision about the future and human ingenuity is essential if we want to achieve change. While there is no clear option besides “firm action”, we need to respect the complexity of the climate talks.

Negotiators need to address the very foundation of our societies and lifestyles, and there are huge issues related to equity, social and economic policies, innovation, global trade, etc.

At the same time, it is crucial that others take action even without a global agreement. Individual progressive governments play a major role: they can be trailblazers, lead by example and highlight the benefits of climate action.
